I'm baking a number 50 cake wherein one cake must be cherry. customer doesn't care what flavor of frosting, but I've never made a cherry flavored cake before and haven't a clue what flavor of frosting would suit best?? Soooo....
1. Please share a dense, carvable cherry cake recipe
2. Please share a frosting that would go well with cherry cake
Thank you so much CC !!!
I would make a cherry chip WASC with extra (10oz) marichino cherries cut into the batter. Ice cake with a dark chocolate ganache or fudge chocolate frosting. Think chocolate covered cherries.
I agree chocolate would be great. Another option is to make a vanilla butter cream, add some marchino cherry juice as your liquid.
AI made a cherry chip recently, and I did a chocolate filling with vanilla bc. I really liked the three flavors together.
this is why i love CC! I love the WASC recipe so may go with that one and the choc for frosting/filling sounds so good....hope that the choco won't show thru the fondant...........
AI love the cherry and pistachio combination, but cherry and chocolate sounds great
Cherry and chocolate or cherry and almond are classic combos.
next question on this same cake......I only need to serve approximately 20 ppl and customer wants the "50" shaped cake......
2 - 11.x15 sheet pan OR 1 - 11x15 sheet pan, cut in half, stacked ?
AIf it was me, it would be either the 7 minute frosting or cherry flavored buttercream. I've made both and they're scrumptious either way!
